sleep with you
(egil olsen)

everyone is sound asleep
i am wide awake
i threw out the sleeping pills
they ordered me to take
guess i'll get some sleep when you awake

i get too much on my mind
when you get off to bed
too much goin on inside
my overloaded head
guess i'll get some sleep when i am dead

every night i toss and turn
crawl under the sheets
toes on fire fingers burn
please turn off the heat
i just wanna fall asleep with you



"this was first written and recorded as a rock n roll song,
but ended up as a lullaby. where it belongs.
